The Laboratory for Neutron and Muon Instruments visits FRM II neutron research facility

Neutron sources in Europe have a long-standing history of collaboration. One such example is the collaboration between the FRM II neutron source at the Heinz-Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ) in Germany and the Swiss spallation Neutron Source (SINQ) at PSI. Joint projects include the successful development of detectors for the instruments DMC at SINQ and ERWIN at FRM II, as well as projects for sample environment and instrument control software.

Recently, the staff of the PSI’s Laboratory for Neutron and Muon Instrumentation (LIN) visited our colleagues at MLZ to learn more about the FRM II reactor and its instrumentation, as well as to discuss current and future joint projects. LIN staff was greeted with Bavarian hospitality in the form of “Weisswurst Frühstück” and then enjoyed a full tour of the facility and many fruitful discussions. During a joint dinner staff from both institutions continued these exchanges. After this enjoyable and productive trip, we are looking forward to welcoming our colleagues from Germany at PSI soon!
